Ah, TD, thank you.

You have irrevokably proven my suspicion that US Grant was in "No Way, Shape, or Form" a great general.  It can clearly be shown now that he was not - especially not in shape and form.  He were just a little dor...er, ah, twerp..

And, I thought Private Clewell's idea that Longstreet was only borderline great might be questionable, but by your very substantial criteria, so it is the case...he was a great, tall man, but not an extremely stout one, ergo, borderline.

Hmmmm, this simplifies the cap on the list that Don was talking about, just one now: weigh 'em and rank 'em, Boys and Girls!
